Quilt-inspired Card

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing another quilt-inspired card.  The previous one featured puffy stickers in the squares, but this time I went with stamping.  

When I made my previous quilt-inspired cards, I die-cut a bunch of different colours so I would have lots of leftovers for future cards with various colour combinations.  It's a great way to use up scraps!  Today's card uses a bunch of  the unused colours. I adhered the stitched squares on a brown panel and discovered that not all of the squares are the same size; some are slightly larger, but it still worked out.

I used two stamp sets (Jane's Doodles Winter Icons and SugarPea Designs Sweet Treats Christmas).  I won the Jane's Doodles stamp from Crafty Milka a couple years ago (thank you!). I had fun stamping the small images on the various squares and I also adhered four punched snowflakes in white (Recollections punch).  This was a fun card to make and I hope to make more in this style - I still have lots of leftover stitched squares and it's a great design for small stamps!  

I would like to join the following 8 challenges:
Christmas Kickstart 56 Christmas Snippets 2/3 C8
Rudolph Day November AG Christmas 1E C10
Word Art Wednesday 519-520 AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk1 3/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a fun, crafty day!

This is so cute with all the mini holiday images. I really like the pink paired with Kraft. Kraft is so versatile, yet I always forget to use it! Nice work :)

Ooooh, I LOVE this one Kitty! Great colours and a fabulous combination of little Christmas images... they're all so cute! I like the snowflakes you added as well. The stitching in each square really adds to that "quilted" feel. Love it!

Love the colour combo of the squares. Stamping on those tiny squares must have been "fun". Great card.
